JOURNALS OF CONGRESS. CONTAINING THE PROCEEDINGS FROM JANUARY 1, 1777, TO JANUARY 1, 1778. PUBLISHED BY ORDER OF CONGRESS. VOLUME III.

New-York: Printed by John Patterson, [1788?]. 603, [1 blank], xxii pp. Bound in original pale paper-covered boards [spine worn, covers detached but present]. Pages 207 and 408 are misnumbered as 107, 480, respectively, as issued. Text untrimmed and clean. Very Good.

"Date of publication suggested by Evans. Patterson is not known to have been printing in New York before 1785. Shipton & Mooney describe this as a reissue with a new title page of the Philadelphia edition printed by John Dunlap in 1778 (Evans 16138). Though it follows that edition closely, it is not printed from the same setting of type" [ESTC]. The Journal is chock full of Revolutionary material, including debates on, and agreement to, the Articles of Confederation; the flag of the United States; an Address to the Six Indian Nations urging them to renounce their alliance with the British; Quakers and their remonstrance; as well as much other detailed material on the Revolution.
